Editor - Videographer - Director - Writer

Laura spent over a decade freelancing in the entertainment industry and has edited a number of reality tv shows on networks such as MTV, E!, TLC, Animal Planet, and Nat Geo. She currently works at the mobile gaming startup Pocket Gems as a staff video editor.

She also runs the YouTube channel Such Wow, where she has written, shot, and edited an ever-growing body of work that spans a number of genres, including comedy and documentary. Her viral video “Cats React to Robot Cat” is on permanent exhibit at the Deutsches Museum, and her video tour of the tech hostel 20Mission was described by SFist as "valuable" and "sort of like MTV Cribs."

Laura holds a B.A. in Film Production from USC and has a high degree of technical fluency in Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, and Final Cut Pro. She also teaches an introductory-level blockchain class and is known for her cat whispering skills.
